In case of Thailand.

- Motorways have connected intercity, like Bangkok to Pattaya (160 Kms), Tollway.

- Expressways have connected Bangkok urban area only. (around 80 Kms), Tollway

- Highways are public free.

Asia Highway open to traffic

Published: 29/10/2011 at 12:00 AM


The worst-affected part was the 9th to 12th-km stretch of the highway in tambon Ban Wa in Bang Pa-in district which was submerged under 1m of water when Ayutthaya was severely flooded by water runoff from the North.

Officials successfully built flood barriers along parts of the highway and pumped water out of the inbound lanes to Ayutthaya. However, they have not yet cleared the outbound lanes to Bangkok which are still flooded.

Motorists travelling to and from Ayutthaya have been told to share the inbound lanes.

Satisfied with efforts to cope with what he described as the "deepest and longest" flooded section, Public Health Minister Witthaya Buranasiri said almost all vehicles can now travel along the 20-km section from Bang Pa-in to Ayutthaya ring roads, he said.

Only parts of the Asia Highway are still flooded with the water as high as 30cm to 40cm.

Receding floodwater on the highway has meant the resumption of services of northern and northeastern bound buses of Transport Co Ltd, said its managing director Wutthichat Kanla.

Buses leaving Mor Chit 2 terminal will proceed along the elevated tollway to the Bureau of the Royal Thai Mint in Pathum Thani before heading to Ayutthaya and on to northern provinces.

On the northeastern route, the buses will travel to Ayutthaya's Nakhon Luang and Phachi districts and then Hin Kong in Saraburi before heading to provinces in the Northeast.

However, Mr Witthaya warned that Phahon Yothin Road from the Bang Pa-in ring road to the Wang Noi market are still severely flooded, especially around kilometres 55 and 58.

Also, motorists cannot use the entrance of the motorway, or the eastern ring road, near Mahachulalongkorn Rajavidyalaya University in Wang Noi district because the area is still under water.

Meanwhile, officials have begun clearing up central Ayutthaya by repairing its damaged levees and draining water from flooded areas.

Ayutthaya governor Wittaya Piewphong expected the flooded Ko Muang, the historic zone in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya district, to gradually return to normal within 25 or 30 days.

Yesterday, officials constructed new flood barriers using cement pipes and rocks at the Hua Laem community after parts of its flood walls earlier collapsed as a result of overflow from the Chao Phraya River.

They also plan to restore the embankment at Khlong Mahachai. Restoration work will probably take two to three days because the canals current remains strong.

Fine Arts Department officials have also begun trying to protect flooded historical sites along major roads which have been turned into canals. On Rojana Road, they have placed bamboo panels around ancient buildings to soften the blows made by the waves from many passing boats.

Motorways and expressways sometime separate by what it's belong to, such as route No.9 (Bangkok 2nd ring) It's contains 3 kind of road in 1 route, belong to its author.

current motorway :
-No.7 Bangkok - Pattaya
-No.9 Bangkok 2nd ring road (eastern side)

For expressways, for now there's more than 80 km. for sure.
-Chaloem mahanakorn line (Dindaeng - Bangna and DaoKhanong)[Y-shape]
-Chalongrat line (Atnarong - Ramindra and its extension to No.9 east side)
-Sri ratch line (Bangkhlo - Chaeng Wattana and Phayathai - Srinagarindra)[T-shape]
-Udon rattaya line (ChanengWattana - Bangpain) Physically it's extension of Sri ratch line. It's nearly inter-city
-Buraphavithi line (Bangkok - Chonburi) This route is inter-city by its physical, but because it belong to EXAT (expressway authority of Thailand) it is expressway.
-No.9 Bangkok 2nd ring (Southern side) belong to EXAT ,different from eastern side which belong to DOH (Department of highways)

Highways are free roads. But its physical are not much different from 2 above.
First, it's not access controlled.
Second, connections with places and small road can be found as same as city roads, but if some route contains high traffic and got enough space, local lanes(at side) and highway lanes(center) will be separate.
-No.9 Bangkok 2nd ring (western side) 4highway lanes + 2 local lanes x2 This section belong to DOH
-No.1-4 National route to 4 parts of country at least 2x2 lanes and more when it's pass city/town
-No.35 (Dao khannong - Pak tho interchange) No.32 (bangpain - Nakorn sawan) No.34 (ฺBangna - Chonburi) 3x2 - 4x2 lanes. These routes serves as main route instead of No.1-4 in 200km. distance from Bangkok. Because No.1-4 in this area were built a long time ago and the city-growth was not controlled by that time. So,the route was surround by cities. Built new as by-pass will do better.
- etc. etc. etc.
